  • Dr. Cohen is the most thoughtful and respectful doctor I have ever met. He is treating my eye related problems and has given great advice about relevant management. He also surgically treated my husband's cataracts, and my husband is also very satisfied with the care and service Dr. Cohen offers. I would recommend Dr. Cohen to everyone seeking an opthalmologist.

    Dr Cohen did surgery on my mother’s eyes 6 years ago and he saved her eyes. I took her back three weeks ago because she was having problem with her left eye and her eye doctor sent her to Dr Cohen. This doctor bedside manners are the best I have seen. He has a way of calming you down. He takes time to talk to the patient and explain everything. I thank God for him. My mother said “I wish I could take him home with me”.

  • I was referred to Dr Cohen.by my ophthalmologist for my glaucoma and cataract. I had post shingle nerve pain in that eye and was very concerned about the surgery. My cataract was also quite dense and I was afraid but it turned out very well. Dr. Cohen performed the Ahmed valve surgery first and it was a complete success. I had to call him at home the day after as I had questions, and he was so nice and explained everything to me. In the past I had a doctor chastise me for calling his service on a weekend. Not Dr. Cohen; he is a true professional who cares about his patients. His staff has always been polite, as well. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen for his skill and compassion.

    Being a professional artist I have always been careful of my eyes and hands. I was scared to death when I started to develop cataracts. I now see better than I did when younger. Dr. Cohen and his staff were wonderful through the whole process. Don't be afraid of the surgery if you need it. You're in good hands.

    After many years of trying to get my glaucoma under control, I was referred to Dr Cohen and I am so very grateful for that recommendation. Dr. Cohen’s skills and knowledge are not what set him apart from some of the other eye specialists I have seen, it is his passion and commitment to helping his patients save their vision. He is honest, caring and you truly feel the partnership with him as you talk through options, goals and next steps. His staff is equally as caring and you never feel like just a number. That culture flows down from the doctor who respects his staff and in turn, the patient. If you are looking for a team that will be a partner in the care of your eyes, Glaucoma Care Center of New Jersey should be your only call.

FAQs

Are you looking to learn more about glaucoma or cataracts?  Here are answers to some of the questions that patients frequently ask at the Glaucoma & Cataract Center of New Jersey.  Content is provided for informational purposes only, and is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.  

Glaucoma

What is glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a condition where the nerve that sends images from the eye to the brain is damaged. It is usually caused by high eye pressure and can lead to vision loss. Glaucoma is sometimes referred to as the “silent thief” because it can gradually steal a person’s vision without pain or symptoms.

Fortunately, we can test for glaucoma in our Livingston, NJ office.  With regular eye exams, early detection, and proper medical care, you can preserve your sight and prevent vision loss. 

Cataracts

What is a cataract?

A cataract is the clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye.  Individuals with cataracts complain of blurred or decreased vision.
